This 12 hour course will cover 3 distinct body regions as listed in the course title. Each of the 4 hour components will consist of 50% didactic learning and 50% psychomotor training on manual therapy of the specific body region. Evidence will be presented on the effectiveness of orthopaedic manual physical therapy (OMPT) for multiple conditions affecting that body region. Additionally, anatomy, biomechanics, epidemiology, etiology, pathomechanics and evidence for manual therapy, for specific conditions affecting each of the body regions, will be discussed. The psychomotor lab will consist of demonstration and practice of techniques to address impairments for each of the body regions. Participants may attend one individual component, all four content areas, or any combination. COURSE OBJECTIVES
At the end of this course attendees will be able to…1. Discuss the current research on the effectiveness of OMPT interventions for the most common conditions of the Shoulder Girdle, Knee Region, Cervical Region, and Lumbar Region.
2. Describe clinically relevant anatomy and biomechanics for common pathologies and OMPT interventions for each body region.
3. Demonstrate the ability to correctly choose and perform manual therapy techniques to address impairments of each body region.
